A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

Right now, I'm reading:
Jitterbug Perfume. Go read it, it's amazing!

My favorite story of all time is:
Neverwhere and Sandman by Neil Gaiman

In bed I like to read:
Moans and groans and sexy sighs from my gorgeous perfect guy!

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
Books are my drug.

If you were to throw up your hands in exasperation and yell "it's the story of my life," what would you be talking about?
Everything always works out for the best!

What six words would I tell my teen self if I could go back in time?
Travel as much as possible girl!

The song that encapsulates the soundtrack of my life is?
The entire Soul Coughing library

If I could have one person read my writing on SMITH it would be?
Neil Gaiman
